DHA to award Bridge Contract for Surge Operations & Analytics Support in support of MHS COVID-19 Response to Accenture

Notice ID: HT9402-21-RFI-0099

The contract period of performance will be from April 3, 2021, through October 4, 2021 with an option to extend for an additional 6 months depending on what the need of the government is at the end of the base period. The twelve (12) month bridge to extend performance is critical to ensure continued support to the DHA by continuing to meet critical requirements and prevent a gap in service which would affect data acquisition and distribution to all government agencies…”
